New Year’s Goals

Happy New Year friends!!

First, thank you all for coming along in this journey with me. So many of you have helped me as I travel down this path, and I appreciate it all so much!

Another year down which means a new set of goals! A couple of years ago, I realized that I prefer setting New Year’s goals instead of resolutions, as resolutions tend to be open-ended and usually end up failing within the first month. Instead, setting concrete goals, it’s easier to track your success and you’ll feel more productive as you cross goals off your list. For example, instead of saying “get in shape” or “exercise more,” set a specific goal like “go for a walk every Monday after work,” or “run in a race each month.” I also believe you should set goals that build on goals from the year before. My progression of one of my goals over the past few years was “Run a 10k race,” then “run a half marathon,” to “run a half marathon in a different state.”

This leads me to my goals for this year!

  • Run three half marathons, and one in a different country
  • Set new PR for half marathon
  • Read 25 books
  • Maintain yoga practice of two classes per week and at least once a week at home
  • Maintain self care practice on Monday evenings

Like last year, I will be going to the book store to get started on my reading goal for this year!

What goals have you set for this year? Anything you didn’t achieve last year you want to add to your list?
